Abstract

Sciaphila jianfenglingensis Han Xu, Y. D. Li & H. Q. Chen (Triuridaceae) is described and illustrated as a new species endemic to Hainan Island, China. It differs from the closely related S. arfakiana Becc. by its longer leaves to ca. 2 mm (vs. ca. 1 mm in S. arfakiana), shorter fruiting pedicels 3–6 mm (vs. typically 7–9 mm), three stamens (vs. two or three), 2-celled anthers (vs. 4-celled), and a filiform style (vs. awl-shaped) that far exceeds the ovary.
